Callie and Decca

were two sisters.

They were on a boat.

They're in the water,

and Callie said to Decca,

"Decca, will you tell me

the story

about the upside-down tree

again please?"

And Decca said,

"Once upon a time,

"there was an upside-down tree.

"And anyone who walked in

through the door of its trunk

"would be immediately

turned to good

if they were bad."

Callie said,

"I would really like

to see that tree sometime."

They went on and on

in the water.

Can you make water?


And then all of a sudden,

they hit land...

And all the animals

joined them,

'cause they wanted to see

the upside-down tree, too.

They had a bunny rabbit.

Can you make a bunny rabbit?

Yeah, the bunny rabbits went,

and there were...


And there was a cheetah.

And... No, don't eat my nose.

I'm trying to tell a story.

Are you a monster?

Are you a monster

eating my nose?

I'm so scared of monsters.

"I wish I could find

the upside-down tree,"

and they ran and they found

the upside-down tree,

but outside was a lion.

"Get away from my tree.

This is my tree."

And Callie said,

"Well, if it's your tree, Lion,

why don't you go inside it?"

Lion said,

"All right, I will."

And he went inside his tree.

And his claws went back

in his paws.

He started smiling.

He started relaxing.

He said, "You're my friends,

and all my friends

are welcome here."

And so Callie and Decca

went into the upside-down tree,

and they all lived

happily ever after.

Do good people ever turn bad

in the upside-down tree?


Good people never turn bad.

Sweet dreams, baby.

Daddy! Daddy!





I'm ready.



Son of a...!

Watch your language.

Last one.

This one's not coming out.




The Bishop boys.

They're coming.

They're coming?

I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry.

If them bullets don't kill you,

and this storm you somehow

brought upon us don't kill you,

goes without saying...

I will kill you.

But I reckon,

you might just be immortal.

Don't go jumping up the second

I leave, starting gunfights.


I can't feel my legs.


You get going.

Get Katie safe with you.

I'm not gonna have you

lose another child.


You don't have to come back.

I understand.

You know me better than that.

Mommy, when are we coming back?

Real soon, sweetheart.

Coming back real soon.

Remember where you came from.

What was there?

A cord.


And wherever you are,

I feel you.




Didn't I make it clear

last time?

You ain't welcome here, Jane.

Get out.

Bishop boys are coming for us.

I need help.

You roll over

in that bed of yours, Jane,

I think you'll find someone

who can help you.

He can't help.

-That's why I came.

-That's funny, isn't it?

Isn't that also the reason

why you left?

There is so much

you don't know, Dan.

What I know...

is I seen everything I need

to know with my own two eyes.

So whatever

you gotta say to me,

I figure you go back

to that little house of yours

and best tell it

to your husband.

'Cause me, I'm busy.

And I don't got time

to entertain

every girl I laid with

back in Missouri.


If my husband could help,

I wouldn't have come here.

He's in rough shape.

Well, that's too bad.

What did he do?

Bishop boys have been

hunting us down for years.

They finally found Ham, and

they shot him to hell and back.

Well, I ain't no doctor.

I don't need a doctor.

I need a gunslinger.

Them Bishop boys

are coming for you...

you don't need a gunslinger.

You need a goddamn regiment.

If I were you...

I would just go home,
